Clear straw color, almost golden, with tons of activity. White 3 finger head lasting around 5 minutes with good legs.

Faint aromas and flavors of barley, corn, citrus, herbal spices. A sharp taste with an unpleasant artificial sugary feel. Slightly skunky and grassy with a wet cardboard feel.

Light body with average carbonation. Faint finish of moderate length ending with a grassy smoky herbal spicy saaz feel on the tongue.

Overall : Poor craft; lacking intensity and balance, missing some body and a little stale.

Deep gold colour, 1/2 inch fizzy white head disappears quickly. No lace. Mild, vaguely beery aroma hints at fresh baked bread lightly buttered. Sweet, malty flavour with notes of white bread and light diacetyl. Light hop bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied with light carbonation for the style. Slick mouthfeel. This would be decent if it weren't for the diacetyl fault. As it is, this is not good beer. Take a pass on it.

It comes in a 1 liter can, its gotta be good.

Sunny, yellow color, small head.

Subtle aromas of wheat and hay, nothing else.

Pleasant flavours of straw and wheat, light on the palate with white bread malt. Very cautious but recognizable hop bitterness, lemon peel, with a metallic touch, due to the high carbonation, which gets especially recognizable as it comes to the aftertaste. Between gentle wheat flavor and slight hop bitterness, there is a whole lot of nothing, watery middlepart, not much going on the palate. A bit too incommunicative overall, even for a light-bodied beer.

500 ml can with a production date stamp of September 9, 2014. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a transparent gold with a small and quickly dissipating head. Smell is not very noteworthy. Tastes slightly malty but quite waterey and no remarkable taste at all. Reminds me of a corona or other similar lagers. The feel is quite carbonated and no real finish to speak of. Overall a fairly low quality lager in my opinion.

Horrible brew, came in a 1 liter can, over carbonated, but it disapeared fast and instead you are left with 8 DL of pure butter mixed with metal.
